    Default Bournemouth v real madrid

    Yes its a world class side but would you pay 60 to see the Madrid Reserve side in a Pre-season friendly?

    Madness but you know some will fork out hence the clubs getting away with it.

    To answer the question, no, I wouldn't pay it. Without doing any digging into it I suspect the prices are so high because Bournmouth have to promise Real Madrid a certain level of gate receipts to make it worth their while even sending a team.

    Bournemouth have contempt for fans it seems. Really 60 for a friendly against a reserve side? Absurd.

    Its not their fault for these high prices. Real Madrid would probably want all expenses paid for to make it worthwhile going over there!!

    It's not the reserves though is it? 60 is still steep but it probably costs a fortune to 'hire' them.

    60 for what probably won't even be close to the first team?

    Bmth chairman Eddie Mitchell was on tv tonight, when questioned about the RM team he said it would be their full first team including Kaka, Ronaldo, and Ozil. Only 3 who've been on international duty wont be available.

    The stars will probably only play the first half anyway.
